Resting in the Arms of the All-Powerful One

Because holiness is God’s being, He cannot lie. Because He is God, He cannot violate the holy nature of His being. God does not will to lie. He does not will to cheat. He does not will to deceive. He does not will to be false to His own dear people.

Or to put it positively, in the very perfection of His character, God wills to be true to His children. Because He is perfect and because He is holy, His believing children are safe. Confidently knowing that the Lord God omnipotent reigns, and knowing that He is able to do all that He wills to do, I have no more doubts. I am safely held in the arms of the all-powerful God.

There is no better way to conclude a discussion like this than with the definition of this omnipotent God given in Hebrews:

Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek (Hebrews 6:17–20).

Verse

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. . . . Deuteronomy 33:27

Thought

Our God is eternal, infinitely holy and altogether omnipotent. We may climb into His arms and confidently trust Him. His love is unfailing.

Prayer

O God, You are the omnipotent, all-powerful One. I sink into Your everlasting arms. You are my refuge!

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
